Carlos Santana is recovering after collapsing about 40 minutes into his set at the Pine Knob Theatre in Clarkston, MI on Tuesday night (7/5).
Fans at the show flooded social media with photos and videos from the concerning scene while offering thoughts and prayers as the 74-year-old was treated by medical staff on stage. About 30 minutes after the fall, he was wheeled off stage on a stretcher and seen waving to fans.
Carlos took to Facebook later that night to address fans writing, “To one and all. Thank you for your precious prayers. Cindy and I we are good just taking it easy. [I] forgot to eat and drink water so I dehydrated and passed out. Blessings and miracles to you all.”
The collapse comes less than a year after the singer canceled shows for an entire month due to a unpredicted heart procedure he underwent in December 2021.
According to a Facebook post by his manager, Michael Vrionis, Santana’s July 6 show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA alongside Earth Wind & Fire for the Miraculous Supernatural Tour has been postponed to a later date.
